Bed Bath & Beyond’s New Collection Has Everything You Need to Actually Use Your Outdoor Space this Winter
When Pinterest is showing year-over-year gains for “Outdoor Thanksgiving” searches to the tune of 139 percent, you know the holidays are going to look very different. Based on this, today Bed Bath & Beyond is launching a Cozy Backyard Holiday collection. The 33-item strong assortment includes furnishings, decor, and entertaining essentials aimed at safely extending the season outside, from fire pits and heating lamps to festive lighting and only-at-Bed Bath & Beyond dinnerware.
“We’ve pivoted quickly to create our Cozy Backyard Holiday collection, with the help of our Decorist designers, to inspire shoppers to find everything they need to warm-up and cozy-up their outdoor spaces this season,” says Cindy Davis, executive vice president and chief brand officer of Bed Bath & Beyond, in a press release. Outdoor collections are traditionally launched in the late winter or early spring—typically around February or March—but this will help anyone who wants to spend safe, socially-distanced time outdoors with loved ones.
I got an early look at the assortment and picked out a few of my favorite pieces. Some can even be ordered online and picked up curbside if you don’t want to shop indoors or can’t wait for something to ship. Anything on the larger side that’s not available for store pickup, however, I’d suggest you order sooner than later for Thanksgiving and beyond.
Sunnydaze Firebowl Wood Fire Pit
Bigger isn’t always better, especially when it comes to fire pits. Even if you have just a little patch of patio or lawn, you can certainly use this compact, bowl-style steel design to warm up outside once it starts to get dark. It’d make a great anchor piece for an outdoor conversation pit and requires zero install.
Buy: Sunnydaze Firebowl Wood Fire Pit with Spark Screen, $175.99
Ugg Classic Sherpa Throw Blanket
Trust me: It doesn’t get much cozier than a sherpa blanket. I have the pillow version of this Ugg style, and it has never disappointed me. Without a doubt, this snow white colorway will get dirty outside, but you can easily throw it in the wash in between gatherings.
Buy: Ugg Classic Sherpa Throw Blanket, $49.99
Forest Gate 7-Piece Outdoor Acacia Dining Set
For the size of this solid acacia wood table—and the fact that it comes with six matching dining chairs, is in stock right now, and ships free—you’re not getting a bad deal here if you need a last minute set for your small Thanksgiving dinner. With Beyond+ membership or a store coupon, you can also score 20 percent off.
Buy: Forest Gate Olive 7-Piece Outdoor Acacia Dining Set in Brown, $1,199.99
Destination Summer Outdoor String Lights
The brand name on these bistro lights might be Destination Summer, but they’ll be a welcome addition to your space all winter long, especially since it gets darker earlier in this season. Hang a few sets in between trees or on a pergola, if you have one.
Buy: Destination Summer 50-Count Outdoor String Lights, $24.99
Godinger Hammered Copper Moscow Mule Mugs
Safavieh Amherst Ferry Area Rug
Don’t forget to add warmth underfoot! A cozy indoor/outdoor rug is a great way to define a seating or table area. Something that’s neutral, like this gray and cream geometric style, will work with any kind of patio set.
Buy: Safavieh Amherst Ferry Area Rug, Starting at $50.99 for a 3-foot by 5-foot size
Sun Joe Fire Joe Wood Burning 35-Inch Cast Stone Fire Pit
If you have the space for a larger fire pit with a built-in look, this stone model will be right up your alley. It looks luxe but comes in under $250, which is a decent price for its size.
